Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Keith's Piano Fall/Winter 1977

For one thing, there's so many more shows from spring than fall. There seems to be more of an edge to Garcia's playing in the fall shows and someone here commented that he changed his tone. 9/3, 10/11, 10/29, 11/2 & 11/6 are all great shows, equal to the best from May. I am not big fan of Keith's playing from spring as he tended to repeat a lot of his playing. I kind of liked his different sound from fall. Also, many songs from May sound the exact same from show to show. I think that by 1978 Garcia's habit, as well as other band members (keith) was out of control.
